Quality Italian north of Market?
I like Delfina a lot, but it might be more convenient on this Saturday night to eat somewhere north of Market--North Beach, Nob Hill, Russian Hill, Polk St. This would be a birthday dinner for a couple and a well behaved teenage girl (it's one of the adult's birthdays). I wouldn't really be looking for a pizza or a "red sauce" place for this meal. Suggestions?

A16 or SPQR are both close to that area, and I think better than the North Beach options, especially if you're wine drinkers.
Seven Hills, mentioned above, was my other thought, but I haven't tried it yet. Waldron, what did you have?
